Change is both a common and consistent theme for most talent acquisition and recruitment teams, having to continuously evaluate and consider how 'change', whether it's internal or external, will impact future talent and people acquisition plans. With that in mind - here's a very interesting take on how procurement will change and evolve, according to research by CIPS. Time to consider how to adapt.
According to research CIPS released last year – CIPS Supply Century – our predictions for the future of the profession have made some difficult reading. We are in no doubt there are fundamental changes ahead. Procurement is changing and as a profession will have to continue to evolve if it is to maintain its critical standing in driving organisational success. The more transactional activities will simply disappear and will become automated. The roles that remain will require new skillsets and we must adapt. Put simply what we have now will not be fit for purpose. Technology and management of data at speed will lead the way and will be a crucial differentiator for us and our organisations.
